Who is Responsible for Emergencies in SA

In emergency situations there are both Hazard Leaders and Control Agencies. Hazard Leaders are responsible for preventing and preparing for emergencies relating to a particular hazard, whereas Control Agencies are responsible for controlling and responding to a particular emergency.

A table listing Council operational responces in emergency situations along with Hazard Leaders and Control Agencies can be found here.

South Australian Emergency Legislation

All State emergencies are governed under the Emergency Management Act 2004 which provides the authority for the State Emergency Plan.

A copy of the Act can be found from the South Australian Legislation web site State Emergency Management Act (SA)

State Emergency Plan

The State Government has developed a State Emergency Plan. This details the responsibilities and strategies of State Government to manage significant state emergencies.

Regional Council Approach

The Cities of Holdfast Bay, Marion, Mitcham and Unley have developed a Regional Framework that is designed to provide support to current Council systems in place to manage emergencies as well as provide scope for future, ongoing planning and development of improved strategies to prevent, prepare to respond to or recover from emergencies within the community.

SCEMPlan is a Regional based Emergency Management framework that has been developed following consultation with internal and external stakeholders and in conjunction with Emergency Service Organisations. SCEMPlan is a 'live' document, with continuous and ongoing review being required to ensure that it continues to reflect best practice and supports current local arrangements.
